Kim Sung Min (Born: Kim Sung Taek) was a South Korean actor. Kim made his acting debut in 1995, as a member of the theatre troupe Constellation. In 2002, he rose to stardom in the hit television drama "Miss Mermaid". "Miss Mermaid" screenwriter Im Sung Han cast him again in her next drama, "Lotus Flower Fairy". But when "Miss Mermaid" was exported to Taiwan and the Philippines, foreign viewers had difficulty pronouncing his given name "Sung Taek," so to further build his Korean Wave profile, Kim adopted the stage name Kim Sung Min in 2005.
Kim married dentist Lee Han Na on February 20, 2013.
On December 4, 2010, Kim was arrested in a drug scandal which also implicated other celebrities. During police questioning, he admitted to habitually using methamphetamine and marijuana and smuggling the former substance into Korea. On January 24, 2011, the Seoul High Court sentenced him to four years in prison; upon Kim's appeal, the jail term was reduced to 30 months suspended for four years, along with two years of probation, 120 hours of community service, 40 hours of substance abuse education, and a ₩904,500 fine. Kim was released from a prison in Uiwang, Gyeonggi Province on March 25, 2011. Because of this, he was dropped from Qualifications of Men and went on a hiatus.
On March 11, 2015, Kim was again arrested for purchasing and ingesting methamphetamine. He allegedly bought 0.8 grams on November 24, 2014, from a dealer who had smuggled the drug from Cambodia. During police questioning, Kim claimed that he only used the drug once and that his relapse had been caused by troubles in his marriage and a slump in his acting career. For illegal drug use and violating his probation, Kim was sentenced to 10 months in prison and a ₩700,000 (US$590) fine.
On 24 June 2016, Kim Sung Min's wife called the police to check on her husband, saying that he had threatened to kill himself following an argument. Police found him attempting to commit suicide by hanging in the bathroom. On 26 June, the police stated Kim Sung Min, who had been in a coma since 24 June, was diagnosed as brain dead at 2AM KST. The diagnosis was confirmed at 10:15 AM KST, and Kim Sung Min's family agreed to donate his organs.
